How We Found Out

If you know anything about me, by now, it's that I have a flair for the dramatic ;)

And so, when DH and I decided that we would test on the Feast of the Assumption, I knew that a plain ol' pregnancy test wouldn't do.  Not only do I loathe those things (and only took one AFTER pregnancy was confirmed, in order to plan out how to tell people... which will be the next post :P), but I also really wanted DH to be as much "in the know" as I was, and for us to find out at the same time in a big way.

Before Mass on Friday, we went in bright and early to my place of work, before anyone else was there, and, you guessed it... I magic wanded myself :)


Here, without further ado, is the video of that glorious moment we will never, EVER forget:

(Pay no attention to the magic wand in my hand that I thought was hidden behind 
me, but, what did I know, I was pretty much in a fog that entire morning.)


And now, I suppose, I will need to get a onesie for the TCIE baby with this logo...



Happiest of Anniversaries to my dear, sweet, inspiring, loving, supportive, strong, amazing husband!!  This has been a journey I cannot imagine going through with anyone else.

Your gift is still in the oven.  It'll be ready by late April, 2015 ;P

What a beautiful, amazing moment!!! I am crying tears of happiness with you! I remember taking a pregnancy test after 5 years of infertility and you have brought me back to that exact moment in time! I, too, loathe pregnancy tests, but for once it was positive! All of us who have hoped against hope share in this joy with you. I have read your blog for years although I'm not sure I've ever commented before. I have been amazed by your acceptance. I think I had gotten to a place where I knew I was not in control, but I was never able to accept my cross. You have placed your complete trust in Christ as we are asked to to and through your great cross came your greatest Ressurection! Truly amazing! I loved hearing your husband's reaction.

thank you, thank you, thank you for sharing that with us! I would have never guessed you wanded yourself. But, really, of course! I love that your husband said, "Thank You, God." I'll probably watch it 10 times. I think I've re-read your blog post at least 10 times! Just warning you so you know I'm not stalking you.

Ania said...

Laughing and crying over here! Laughing at your clinical matter of factness (reminded me of myself) and crying at hearing your sweet hubby's emotional reaction. Oh I am just so overjoyed for you! How neat that you could sneak such an early peek and have the moment captured forever. The burning question is, how will you not be tempted to ultrasound yourself every day you work?!

Catholic Mutt said...

What a beautiful moment; so, so excited for your family!

Thankful said...

Thank you for sharing this sweet moment and congratulations again! Crying at my desk at work. I really wish my job came with an u/s wand...it would be WAY more exciting.
